My wife got me a bowl gouge for Christmas from Thompson tools and I have rewarded her with a few candy dishes or salt bowls or whatever she wants them to be.

The first is a mystery wood that I got at my woodturning club. Someone told me it might be spalted Florida pecan. Either way it had beautiful grain. The second is a small box elder bowl. The third is from a West Indian Mahogany branch that was lying in my dad’s backyard for 2 years. I have used it for a number of things as it has fantastic color.

Very nice. The last one looks a lot like a bowl I made from Irish Yew a few weeks ago.
Keep up the good work.

What finish did you use on those bowls? They are great looking!

Thanks everyone. I still have a long way to go.

Poisson, the finish is just Danish Oil and Wipe-on Poly. I haven’t tried finishing any of these on the lathe yet.
